    WST: 3/30-31 The end is near? Or is it just the beginning?

    Well, that was a fun weekending. From the Catskills to N.vt, sounds like everyone got the goods. Killer day at Belleayre for me Saturday.

    But what does next weekend hold? Forecasts for the Cats aren't great. What about N.Vt? There is certainly good base up there - will this weekend be the kick off of corn season? Squeeze one more out of the pokes? Maybe S.Vt doesn't warm up too much?

    Is this closing weekend for some southern mountains?

    Speculate away!





    Me - Could possibly day trip Sunday, but would take a promise of exceptional soft and sunny skiing, or a good group of friends and family to make we want to do it. Last Sat. was so good, I'd be satisfied calling it a season. Though I am holding out hope for an early April N.Vt weekend....I'm sure there will be snow, but my schedule doesn't allow a weekend away until that second week - the 10th? I might be done...

    Have to be up there this weekend so I'll take whatever. Stowe is buried.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    We are getting into that time of year where all you need for a good day is abundant sunshine. Warm temps help but sun alone is enough to soften everything it touches up this time of year. While I hate to see winter leave as it means the end is getting closer, at least we get a nice consolation prize......spring bumps and tailgating for the next 2 months!

    That's an awesome trip KK. Heard a lot about Silverton but doubt I'll ever get to ski it. Please post a TR. Have a great time.

    Weather is looking a bit iffy now for the weekend. But that can change. Temps do look to be warm for some spring skiing.

    Beginning of the end for the low elevations. 41-64 degrees for Central NH for the next 10+ days with some rain tossed it Sunday.

    Yup, this looks to be the weekend where a good chunk of the areas who don't usually try and go deep into April will probably spin the last chair of the season, and then if 10 day forecast for next week is remotely close, that will probably take it down to less than 20 areas open after the 1st weekend of April comes to an end.

    Getting into the "no excuses" time of the season for not getting out there to get a few more days in if one wants to. The bases are still generally good, the operations feasibility financially is going to likely rapidly start to fall off for most places in the next 1 to 3 weeks
